Torrents are the latest and fastest way of distributing software’s and other content on the web. With torrents users can download files from multiple users rather than having to download files from a single server.
What are Torrent Files?
BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used to distribute large amounts of data. The initial distributor of the complete file or collection acts as the first seed. Each peer who downloads the data also uploads them to other peers. Relative to standard Internet hosting, this provides a significant reduction in the original distributor’s hardware and bandwidth resource costs. It also provides redundancy against system problems and reduces dependence on the original distributor.
How to Open .torrent files?
There are various software’s that will allow you to open and download the content from .torrent files. BitTorrent has their own software using which you can open .torrent files. We prefer using uTorrent though, a lightweight software, which is fast and allows for easy management of .torrent files.
uTorrent is completely free and was included in the 35+ amazing and free softwares we talked about earlier.
